TWC interns from Ohio met with Senator Sherrod Brown and members of his legislative staff at the U.S. Capitol Visitor’s Center in Washington, D.C. The students, who attend Morehead State University, Tiffin University, University of Toledo, University of Cincinnati-Main Campus and University of Mount Union, spoke with the Senator about policy issues concerning:


  • Education
  • Energy and Environment
  • Jobs
  • Women's Global Issues

When asked about the visit, Julia Hanson from University of Toledo said: "I feel much more informed about the lobbying process and how to communicate with representatives after this visit."


Students who participated in this visit included:

  • Kaci Foster–Morehead State University
  • Jessica Walters-Tiffin University
  • Julia Hanson-University of Toledo
  • Ivuka Onwukwe-University of Cincinnati-Main Campus

Public Policy Dialogues on Capitol Hill (PPDCH), sponsored by the Verizon Foundation, provide students with the unique opportunity to meet and interact with members of the Senate or House of Representatives representing their state or congressional district. This is one component of The Washington Center's internship program.
